Extremely few of my IRS and GAO coworkers passed the CPA examination and virtually none became licensed CPAs.)

— Over 20 Million Immigrants Are Set to Vote In 2024 – Sarah Arnold (COMMENT: How many illegals are set to vote for Democrats in your county, in your township, in your municipality, and in your precinct?)
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Since the 2020 election, several lawmakers have sounded the alarm that migrants may be voting in U.S. elections illegally. The worries are again ramping up as the 2024 presidential election nears the corner. According to an analysis from a Left-wing American Immigration Council, more than 23 million immigrants are set to vote in the upcoming election, revealing the electoral power of the United State’s annual importation of more than a million immigrants has given to naturalized citizens. “As more immigrants naturalize and become eligible to vote, they continue to gain political power,” the analysis states. “The number of immigrant voters is only projected to rise in the next decade, and in some states, foreign-born voters are already capable of deciding elections.” . . . The analysis comes at a time when President Joe Biden faces immense pressure to boost voter turnout ahead of the election. Rep. Mike Johnson (R-La.) warned that Biden wants to turn illegal migrants into Democrat voters— hence the reason the administration is looking the other way at one of the worst border crises of U.S. history. “The Biden administration has done this intentionally. [Department of Homeland Security] Secretary [Alejandro] Mayorkas has done this intentionally. For what reason? Everybody asks me all the time. I think that ultimately they hope to turn all these illegals into voters for their side,” Johnson said. “It sounds sinister, but there’s no other explanation for what’s happening down there. It’s an absolute humanitarian and now national security crisis — catastrophe really — and they could reverse it overnight if they wanted to, but they don’t.” Earlier this year, California considered a measure allowing non-citizens to vote in municipal elections. While Democrats advocate for more illegal aliens to be let into the country, Republicans argue such a measure would dilute the value of being an American citizen. New York City also considered a similar measure. However, the state Supreme Court struck it down. Meanwhile, some states, including Ohio, Alabama, Arizona, Colorado, Florida, Minnesota, and North Dakota, have banned noncitizen voting outright.)


— Woke Disney ‘Excited’ to Roll Out Employee Pronoun Pins – Andrew Rodriguez

— After Supreme Court ruling, college applicants still write about race. The court’s rejection of affirmative action in admissions does not mean race is off limits for students. – Nick Anderson (COMMENT: Anticipate/expect that under the Democrats and under the RINOs, college applicants who are liberal, minority, female, LGBTQ, non-Protestant, non-German American, have ancestors who have not been in America for a long time, and/or are citizens of foreign countries will ever-increasingly get more and more and more preference. UIC accepted me in 1966, NIU in 1969, Loyola in 1972, DePaul in 1976, and IIT in 1992, but because I am none of the aforesaid, I doubt that they would accept me today.)

— Israel-Hamas War Raises Concerns in U.S. About Religious Discrimination. Advocacy groups for both Muslims and Jews report rise in incident reports. – Tarini Parti (COMMENT: I should write a book about my critics/opponents who have made it the clearest that they despise/hate Protestants and especially Missouri Synod Lutherans (MSL). I was baptized as a MSL in 1948, raised as a MSL, and confirmed as a MSL in 1962. My parents sent me to Trinity Lutheran Grade School in Crete 1953-1961 and then to Hope Lutheran Grade School in Park Forest 1961-1962 to stay with the Missouri Synod.)

— Affirmative Action is Dead. How About Reparations? As colleges reckon with the Supreme Court’s affirmative action ban, some see an opportunity to return to the policy’s early roots: reparations through admissions. – Evelyn Hockstein (COMMENT: According to Democrats and RINOs, reparations are owed big time to those who are minority, female, younger, LGBTQ, non-Protestant, non-German American, those whose ancestors have not been in America for a long time, and those who have less money than others.)

— To meet Affirmative Action, Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion quotas, goals, and targets, accounting firms have always given preference to younger minorities and to younger women, that is, they have always discriminated against older Whites and older males. Accounting firms had absolutely no interest in me because I am a White male who did not a) take and pass the CPA examination until I was 30, b) become a licensed CPA until I was 32, c) take and pass the Certified Internal Auditor examination until I was 32, and d) become a Certified Fraud Examiner until I was 41, Government Financial Manager until I was 45, Financial Services Auditor until I was 47, and Forensic Accountant until I was 48. It is called up-or-out, reverse discrimination, and age discrimination.

— Caste Equality Advocates in the US Vow Not to Give Up (COMMENT: What Caste were you born into, that is, how much education and money did your parents have? Neither of my parents attended college. My father was only the first of my ancestors to earn a high school diploma. He worked in the office of a nasty chemical plant. He almost always worked second jobs to pay the family’s bills. My mother never attended high school. Consequently, to buy cars to get to/from jobs and college and to pay for my college expenses, I a) did yard work 1962-1964, b) delivered newspapers 1962-1966, c) washed dishes 1964-1966, d) cleaned golf shoes, chipped slag, and pumped gasoline in 1966, and e) delivered mail 1966-1969.)
